Yeah, why would anyone think high gas prices would be related to having oil men in the white house?
FYI, your taxes will be higher under George Bush unless you make more than $200,000. Under $200,000, the tax brackets stay exactly the same no matter whom you vote for. But since the state and local governments get less in block grants under Bush, you'll enjoy higher property taxes and possibly state and local taxes.
If you make more than $200,000, then yes your tax bracket will go back to where it was before Bush got in office -- so you'll pay more in taxes.
In summary: * Salary $200,000 or less -- higher taxes under Bush. * Salary over $200,000 -- higher taxes with Kerry.
"Yeah, why would anyone think high gas prices would be related to having oil men in the white house?".... I do not think the whitehouse folks have a thing to do with it! You miss the point completely. Your loud and long proclamations of bullshit about taxes do not make it true..... Just misleading to others who are not in the know! My taxes are less now than 2 years ago.
Sorry, but you're the bullshitter. And you are the one trying to mislead. Anyone who wants to know the truth can check any major independent news source: CNN, CBS, ABC, NBC, whatever. They all say the same thing. Bush and Kerry both want to keep the same tax brackets up to $200,000. Above $200,000 the taxes are higher with Kerry. Kerry will keep the taxes higher for those making more than $200,000 in order to cut the deficit in half in four years and pay for health care reform. But those are just the facts -- don't let the facts get in the way of your opinion.
Yeah, and in those same 2 years the deficit increased by 1 TRILLION dollars! As a fiscal conservative, I'm offended by that. Like everyone else, I love paying lower taxes -- but I'd also like to have a strong balance sheet. That keeps America strong.
I understand that the Republicans want to run a large enough deficit so that we have to eliminate social security. They call it "starve the beast". Personally, I think that's a politically expedient, but very risky, strategy. I don't think America will be better off without social security.
